By seamlessly integrating these capabilities with Apple's QuickTime digital technologies, AppleWorks 6.2 makes it effortless to incorporate text, spreadsheets, digital photos, images, sounds, and movies in a single document.
Sharing documents is a breeze with AppleWorks 6.2. New translators for Microsoft Word and Excel files let you open and modify these files from within AppleWorks*. You can even save AppleWorks documents in these formats to share with friends and colleagues.
If you're running AppleWorks 6.2 on Mac OS X, you'll notice additional benefits. Preemptive multitasking means that you can work on AppleWorks projects while iTunes rips your CD collection in the background, and your system will still stay responsive. Want to share your AppleWorks document with the world and have it seen just as you intended? Or for others to view it without changing the file? The advanced Quartz graphics system in Mac OS X lets you save your print previews of any AppleWorks document as a PDF file. Anyone with Adobe Acrobat Reader on any platform can view and print these PDF files with all the fidelity of your original document.
Templates are such a great way to jump-start the creative process that we've added more. An expanding library of templates--stored on the Internet--can be downloaded via AppleWorks 6.2 without launching a browser or decompressing files. Many of the templates are designed by affiliated organizations, such as the AppleWorks Users Group, and new templates are added regularly.
Of course, we didn't stop there. AppleWorks 6.2 lets you create impressive presentations in minutes. Want to drop a movie into your presentation? Go right ahead--and when you're ready to stage your presentation, 26 slide transitions will help you segue smoothly from point to point. If needed, your presentation can even run by itself, using the loop and timed auto-advance options.
